Lets Jump Right into it!!
Well it is no secret every Construction contractor around the world might have faced the issues with the equipment budgets and availability of those for their running projects especially while dealing with pipe laying projects.
Volvo Construction Equipment made a basic answer for clients who have been utilizing ordinary earthmovers to put line and who would prefer not to purchase a committed pipelayer for the work. The new Volvo backhoe pipelayer connection changes over Volvo’s 14-ton backhoes, (for example, the EC140 and ECR145E crawler tractors) into devoted pivoting pipelayers, while additionally filling in as a decent trade for sidebooms in numerous applications.
“In case you’re not bringing down in pipe consistently, it tends to be difficult to legitimize the interest in a devoted pipelayer or side boom,” says Todd Cannegieter, item administrator, Attachments and Special Applications, Volvo CE. “We needed to give clients another alternative.”
How It Works
The turning pipelayer unit includes a pipelaying boom that joins to the principle boom of the backhoe, changing over from tractor to pipelayer (or the other way around) in around 60 minutes. With regards to ship, Volvo says earthmovers with the pipelayer unit can be prepared for travel in minutes: simply stack and go. Furthermore, dissimilar to a customary side boom pipelayer, Volvo’s licensed turning superstructure configuration gives the pipelayer pack mobility as there’s no compelling reason to continually reposition the tracks, and the administrator will consistently confront the heap. The short-swing-range ECR145E can perform pipelaying chip away at occupied two-path roads while leaving one path open for traffic, adding pipelaying adaptability in metropolitan regions.
Volvo CE 14-ton excavators equipped with the pipelayer kit can safely handle pipes up to 20 inches (508 millimeters), with a rated load of 7,300 pounds (3,300 kilograms). Max working height is 24 feet (7.3 m) and max working depth is 50 feet (15.2 m). This pipelayer configuration also gives the ECR145E the same lifting capacity as its standard excavator sibling, the EC140EL.
